russian married with children

Also, a Belorussian Big Bang Theory: Looks like the producers of TBBT are aware of the Belorussian one, but have very little legal recourse: “CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #277 Belarus is a small, land-locked country next door to Russia, Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. According to Wikipedia, one of its major exports is cattle by-products. Which [Continue]

slumdog coraline

Saw Taken last week, think I mentioned it here, it was good. Then I saw Gran Tourino, the Clint Eastwood movie. Damn good film. Last weekend I saw Coraline with Wessika, another good movie, even better in 3d. And then yesterday went and saw Slumdog Millionaire. Wow! I was not expecting it to be so [Continue]

taken

Go see this movie. Now! Go see it! But And this is a big but… Make sure you see the european version that is rated R and not the watered down pg-13 crap they are showing over here. Apparently if you don’t see Liam Nesson stabbing the dude in teh knees with knitting needles then [Continue]

how conceivable!

Wow! Have y’all seen the new Princess Bride DVD? Take a look at the title, how it’s an ambigram (it reads the same upside down or downside up). (click on the image to make it flip…errrrr…nevermind, that just makes a mirror image which is not what we want, so don’t do that. errr…actually it works [Continue]

24 starts soon

You can watch the 2 hour 24 movie, Redemption, over at fox’s website. The new 24 season starts this Sunday. (I thought it was the Sunday of the Super Bowl, but I was wrong)

new trek movie!

Replace “Mr. Sulu” with “Kif” in the second panel, and the last two panels sound exactly like something Zap Brannigan would say. He’s the Kirk-based starship captain in love with Leela on Futurama. Also funny, but very unrelated, dude trys to pay his overdue bill with a spider drawing.

quantum of bad assness

Saw Quantum of Solace Saturday night. Awesome! I really like the new James Bond. He, and the series, and more realistic, more gritty, less dumbass and much much less stupid ass gadgets. QoS starts five or maybe 15 minutes after the end of he last movie, Casino Royale, so if you haven’t seen it, you [Continue]

the fighting pistol

So I ummm…downloaded the Fighting Pistol series of videos by James Yeager of Tactical Response. Wow! Such a good video series. I like the guy’s style, and his emphasis on what works, not posturing and what not. I think I’ll be watching them all again and again. I like that he emphasizes movement. Move as [Continue]

looking for a song

What is the song that plays in “Training Day” when Denzell Washington drives off from the diner with Ethan Hawke? The camera is showing his tricked out Monte Carlo as it drives. I think it’s something by Snoop Dogg, but dunno, my rap-fu is poor. I feel the need to make a bad ass driving-in-my-truck [Continue]

wanted

So mowed 11 yards yesterday. Ouch. It was like 189 thousand degrees yesterday. And the humidity was pretty bad, too. Then went to dinner with Wessika at Pizzeria Uno, and saw Wanted, the new movie with Angelina Jolie. And Morgan Freeman. It was good, but it was pretty violent. Jessika said she felt like throwing [Continue]

saturday

Saturday Dean and I mowed yards. Glad he helped. It was hot and muggy and I went through a six pack of gatorade myself. Then we met up with a co-worker of his and went to Alpine Shooting range. Had a good time. My Remington 700 was right on target, maybe a little to the [Continue]
